An “alcoholic” cannot claim disability anymore. This just goes to prove the 12 step program and the disease model of “alcoholism” is erroneous. It is assumed that all addicted people are pathetic dumbells who do not know they are addicted. The best thing to do is stay away from recovery groups of all kinds. Go to Books A Million and purchase a book—Rational Recovery–A new cure for (By Jack Trimpey—Pocket Books c 1996) This will free your mother from addiction if she wants to be free.
